You are incorrect. The Windtura 750 is NOT a piece of crap car alternator. I think you need to verify this for yourself because what you are saying is wrong:http://www.windynation.com/products/wind/generators-and-pmas/windtura-750-permanent-magnet-alternator
Read my thread on this forum and my other postshttp://forum.solar-electric.com/showthread.php?t=9759
I purchased a modified car alternator before I got the Windtura 500. The car alternator was a piece of $#%@. 250 worthless watts in 30 mph winds! I got dooped on that one but I am happy with my Windtura. It does what they claim and I have no complaints. I wish I had did my homework the first time and I would have never got that darn car alternator!
You are right about solar also. I agree solar is a real deal right now but if you have wind and especially if you have wind when there is no sun, then a wind turbine can sure help that battery bank:D I have 300 Watts of solar now running in combination with my wind turbine.
